Sounds like a good idea in general, though I suspect that formats will
vary considerably between makes and models.
I have not really had reason to experiment all that much, but from the
Ericsson 788 docs it seems that the AT commands are at least similar to
the Nokia commands, so some probing on various phones may give you
similar listings if you are a bit lucky. (As usual AT commands are not
identical for different makes of modems, but often they are at least

Well, the AT commands worked fine for me. In fact, when a friend needed
his Ericsson phone's SIM card contents copied to his new operator, I
wrapped up a Linux shell script in ~5 minutes to transfer it - but of
course, I moved the SIM card to my Nokia PhoneCard first... ;-)

Right - still think Gnokii should give you a good start for now.

I'll give my vote when I see your result in a few weeks ;-)
